CD 411 - Leafy Thinking of You

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge # 411!

The new Core catalog has been released for Close To My Heart and there are 8 colours that are retiring. This challenge gives you one last chance to use those colours as the tic-tac-toe grid includes all of them plus silver and gold. 

My tic-tac-toe is twofold - bottom row and diagonal from top left to bottom right. 

Since the autumn season is upon us with the trees changing here, I decided to use the colours that would work for the changing leaves. The leaves were die cut from an older set of thin cuts and I used the lighter shade of the cardstock for the leaf bases and the darker shade for the overlay. A background of black dots was used along with a piece of Eggplant patterned paper and some Julep glitter paper. The sentiment was embossed with gold embossing powder and placed across two sections of the card. I added some gold embellishing thread, a few gold glitter gems and I also brushed the leaf overlays with the Gold Shimmer Brush. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret the grid shown above.

You can never go wrong with colorful leaves. I love the addition of the gold shimmer on the overlay! The strip of Eggplant just makes the whole card POP!
